"The best children's books are long remembered and become part of the personalities of their readers because they make demands on the imagination and creativity of those readers and because they are read in the most impressionable years. . . . . The White Stag (Viking), Charlotte's Web (Harper), The Borrowers (Harcourt) . . . come quickly to mind. All were published for children. All can be enjoyed by adults. All make demands on readers of any age. None was written or published to be a learning experience. Each is a work of art-to make a work of art a part of oneself is to make life richer forever after."-Harper's, December 1953
